One can only feel compassion for people who are so dysfunctional that they feel they have to do this. Israel has created this situation by allowing citizens in general and fundamentally religious Jews in particular, to live the lie that Palestine belongs to them and that the Palestinians are less than human interlopers who have no rights. This does not just make Israel look even worse in the eyes of the world, a hard thing to do these days, it must make sane Israelis and Jews cringe. This is not what Judaism is about. This is not what Israel was meant to be about. But this is exactly what Judaism and Israel have become. occupation and colonisation debases the occupier and the coloniser and corrupts and rots the society and the culture from within. Israelis of conscience need to take a stand to end the racist, apartheid policies of Israel.
